Thanks Greg and Jeannie for bringing such great music with you to Cove Lake. I love that you go outside the envelope. Lady of the Lake is a delight and I'm having fun learning it. And thanks again for that pizza! Jane H.
Thanks again for all your help at Evart. Are you back home now? Or still on the road some where? I sure like using your bows you loaned me, but I will return them if you let me know, where and how..Saw Jeanie in a Mt.Dulci class, but she didn't see me. Enjoyed watching you videos. I'll post the one of you playing at my camp, when I figure out how..
Thank you Gregg for helping me tune my bowed psaltery and give me all your helpful tips on playing with two bows at the ODPC, in Evart,Michigan. I tried to find you on Sunday to give you back your two bows you've loand me,but the neighbors there said you had already left. I wish I had known you were having a little jam session with bowed psaltery players, I would have came down to your camping area, maybe next time. Will you be at the midland, Mi festival on August 26-27, 2016 ? If so I will return your bows.
I love it! I play it after a stressful day at work. I grew up playing the organ and this is a great substitute since I have not had an organ for about 24 years. I never thought of playing with 2 bows until I saw some of the videos! I am excited to learn that!
Thanks Greg and Jean, I'm a newbie with this. My psaltery has a couple of broken strings and the hitch pins have no holes in them. I don't know how to tie the strings around the notch in the pin. Do you know of any videos that shows the procedure. I may have to send it up to you for repair if I can't figure it out. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me on this.
